Tk 1,500cr unpaid bills: Titas starts disconnecting gas lines
Titas Gas Distribution Company Ltd has started disconnecting gas supply to households and industries in the capital due to unpaid bills of around Tk 1,500 crore.
"We cut off 200 connections in Sobhanbagh zone on November 7 and 8. Today, 30 teams are conducting drives in Kuril zone," Rashidul Alam, general manger (revenue) at Titas, told The Daily Star today.
"The gas lines were disconnected as the users were reluctant to pay the bill despite repeated notices," he said.
The officials said they would snap gas connections of bill defaulters in Mirpur next week.
"We will continue the drive by phases in other zones too," he said.
